Resistencia is the capital and largest city of the province of Chaco, in northeastern Argentina. At the 2001 census, the population of the city proper was 274,490 inhabitants. It is the anchor of a rather larger metropolitan area, Greater Resistencia, which comprises three more municipalities and has a 2008 population estimate of 377,000. This conurbation is the largest in the province, and the eleventh most populous in the country. It is sited along the Negro River, a tributary of the much larger Paraná river, opposite the city of Corrientes, Corrientes Province.The area was originally inhabited by Guaycuru aboriginals, such as the Tobas. Their resistance to evangelisation postponed substantial European settlement until the late 19th century. Not until 1865 was a proper settlement established, and on January 27, 1878, Resistencia was formally established as the territorial capital. The national government supported immigration, and in 1878 the first Italian immigrants arrived. The first City Council was made up entirely of members originating from that country.ClimateResistencia is one of the warmest cities in Argentina, and is known for its extremely hot, humid summer weather with frequent lightning. The climate is humid subtropical (Köppen climate classification Cfa), with a cooler, dryer season and a long, humid summer. Fall and spring are often marked by sudden transitions from summer weather patterns to winter weather patterns.
